Posted on 09/03/2013 6:08:07 PM PDT by tcrlaf
A new use-of-force resolution for Syria sets a 60-day deadline, with one 30-day extension possible, for President Barack Obama to launch military strikes against the regime of Syria President Bashar Assad and it will also bar the involvement of U.S. ground forces in Syria.
Aides to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) were also involved in the discussions over the revised resolution.

MEANING.. A BIGGER THAN USUAL DECEPTION IS BEING CARRIED OUT.
If I were Matt Bevin my commercial on this treachery against the will of the American people would be on the air tomorrow.
It doesn’t matter a whit what they pass. Nobody can predict what’s going to happen after the first bomb goes off.
Too bad this didn’t happen during March Madness or the Super Bowl - Barry would be too busy filling out his bracket or buying squares.
How does Congress compromise on something which is either right or wrong?
Most of these people running our government are clueless...
We have chemical warfare coming across the border with the narcoterrorists.
And at the first use of force, Syria and allies have the right to respond against American assets anywhere, anytime, as they see fit until a formal cessation of hostilities.

Mr Limbaugh Respectfully Sir :
He can lose if Conservatives let loose and respond using these examples....
Whatever happened to the UAR ?
We got this guy in the White House who likes to pop his mouth off and because of it people die. He picks on some poor security guard just doing his job. Shoots his mouth off because he sees an advantage to push items on his socialist agenda by painting a target on a supporters back. To which his media like good socialists they are spin tales of lies and falsehoods that wind up causing a race war in this country. The GOPES (gop Elite Snobs) so called political opposition leadership want to go along with this bad policy on Syria because they dont want to be blamed for this terrible idea. With the guard which affects the demographics they claim to be reaching out to blacks, hispanics and whites. They say nothing and cant even call the political opposition for what they are; socialist.
Obama draws some line in the sand on some civil war thats going on in a region whos outcome really doesnt threaten US even though a former enemy which is going through its own stuggles has a naval base there. And now were supposed to support a military action which could cost American lives in the end....All because our fearless leader spoke ?
Now what else should be said ? How about this ?
There are reports from solid sources that the rebels also have gotten into those Iraqi WMD store brought in during the US invasion, and that Assad wouldnt use them because hes winning. Beside you sir, there are others reporting the same thing
But after the 1st dust up when we kicked Iraq out of Kuwait because of oil when the Kurds acted up and Hussain gassed them we did nothing.
Now we get this high blown democracy b/s about an incident where very likely both sides are reverting to its use. As Syria itself is fragmenting into different identities; Kurdish, Alewite and Shite Nutzies. Which wouldnt help Suni Iran much either
Who really doesnt want that ? Turks for sure,the Saudis and the Shite principalities. Russia would be OK with it because of their naval base is in the Alewite area.
If the Russians and Syrians start defending themselves to our attack the only person who would benefit would be who ? The guy who started it by opening his big mouth ?
God ... am sorry, the Fools on the Hill remain Fools.
These people have been practicing war for a thousand years as a form of employment and as an outbranch of their religious dogma. A hundred year long conflict is one which is barely getting started.
And we want 24 hours to push a button 500 miles away to spit some tomahawk missiles at some stucco plastered stone walls in Damascus? Feh!
yes and no doubt biological as well.
yes, correct blackdog. Our timeline is out there. Works quite well to tip the enemy of your plan in the enemies’ favor.
What is becoming apparent is that our “Representatives” and Senators believe their primary loyalty is to the federal government and their constituents are only secondary (i.e., subjects).
Here’s the compromise: Stay the hell out of it !

Obviously they do not give a sxit about we the people and a country of and for the people. They are an owned cabal that plays us as fools. 80% of Americans are against any Obama action in Syria or ME. The media and political elites continue to portray it as being much less because the media and their owners are liars.
Our disgusting, corrupt senators at work! (for Saudi King)
They are the farmers. We are the cows.
That’s all you need to know about them.
